Lucky Hair clips

I wanted to send something to my sister’s kids in March so I made these cute Hair clips for Clementine and a Lucky shirt for Oscar. These clips were really simple and only took about an hour to make. (An hour with an awake toddler to distract me)
Here is what you will need to make your own
  • Scraps of felt in kelly green, dark green and white.
  • green embroidery floss
  • 2 Contour clips
  • scissors
  • needle
  • Scrap of paper

    001 On a scrap of paper, trace around the contour clip leave a boarder of about 1/4th an inch this will be your pattern for the white and dark green felt. Cut 2 shapes form both colors.
    009 Cut 6 hearts from the kelly green felt. The hearts should be about the size and shape of the hearts on a deck of cards.
    017 Once you have cut all your pieces out you are ready to sew your lucky clovers on.
    020 I sewed a plus sign with 3 stitches for each heart shaped leaf and 3 stitches for the stem. Do the same thing on the other piece of white felt. Be sure to do the mirror image of the first clip or else it will be upside down when worn.019
    022 Cut a small slit in the dark green felt to insert the center part of the contour clip as shown. You will fasten in place by sewing through the circle at the triangle tip
        Next sew the top and bottom together and wear or give to a very lucky friend.
